Featured Programs of this Month :


ParkSide Centre Without Walls

ParkSide Centre Without Walls (PCWW) is easy to join and enjoy for free.  Now seniors in our area can be part of a community from the comfort of their own home.  No computer or internet needed, just a phone call connects participants with educational, health and wellness, travelogues, local history and games sessions Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, just to start. New programs will be offered as we grow.  Seniors are not alone when they join this interactive telephone-based virtual seniors’ centre. It’s fun, free and easy!

COVID-19 Vaccinations

As the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccinations continues in the community, the number of questions being asked by our members continues to rise. In response to these, we have invited Natalie Philippe, RN/IA from the School Health, Vaccine Preventable Disease & Covid Prevention Division of Public Health Sudbury & District. Join us to find out which vaccine you should take, the safety and efficacy of the vaccines and how the rollout is being conducted. To register, please contact the ParkSide Centre at (705) 673-6227.
